After reading I will not use the aria-controls label to connect the collapse/expand buttons to the corresponding sections. As it seems it is more important to have a good focus handling / keyboard navigation there.

Change 358985 had a related patch set uploaded (by WMDE-Fisch; owner: WMDE-Fisch):
[mediawiki/extensions/TwoColConflict@master] Basic screenreader compatiblity improvements

WMDE-Fisch added subscribers: Lea_WMDE, Jan_Dittrich.

Most of the basic things mentioned in this ticket are addressed in the patch above. Keyboard navigation can still be improved though. I tried to create grid structure in the changes div but arrow navigation was not possible even after several restructuring approaches. ( I think this is somehow related to the "scroll-ablity" in that div ).

A session with PM/UX would be helpful for some navigatioin decisions needed her. Also an other session with a accessibility expert would be great.

Yes – is there a version where I can try this already?

The main issues in this ticket where addressed with this patch. Further improvements especially in regard of keyboard navigation with screen readers could probably be done, but we would probably need more user feedback for that.
